The Faculty of Communication and Media Studies offers thesis-based graduate program leading to degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the field of Communication and Media Studies. Communication and information technologies and global communication networks have had a profound influence on the relationship between political, economic, and social institutions worldwide, and promise to continue reshaping these institutional and social relationships at an increasing rate in the foreseeable future. It is imperative that professionally and intellectually prepared students are available to take up the educational and professional roles and responsibilities that these changes are undoubtedly going to reshape. The objective of the graduate program in Communication and Media Studies is to ground students in the theoretical and professional knowledge that they need in order to engage effectively and ethically responsibly in the information and communication age—as both scholars and as professionals. Our transdisciplinary program has internal flexibility, allowing for a variety of emphases that cater to individual student needs while simultaneously providing common grounds in the theoretical bases of communication research and practice.
